Pata Cabra

PATA CABRA (Zaragosa, Spain) – Semi-firm pressed curd cheese made from goat’s milk. Made in the shape of a brick, it is a washed rind cheese which is wonderful both young as well as when it is aged. It is quite pungent yet smooth, silky, and very enjoyable. The rind turns from a reddish, slightly shiny color into a pale orangey brown.  With a little extra age, it becomes more pungent and powerful. Pair it with an off-dry or fruity white.
